Janhvi Kapoor entered Bollywood with a bang in her blockbuster film Dhadak. The film also starred Ishaan Khatter in the lead role and did a decent performance at the box-office. The performance by Janhvi was loved by one and all. However, Janhvi’s mother and legendary actor Sridevi never got to saw her daughter’s debut film as she had passed away on February 24, 2018 due to accidental drowning in a hotel room in Dubai. In an interview with Filmfare, Janhvi revealed that her mother’s passing away is still a shock to her and she has still not been able to process it. The actress also recalled the moment when her half-brother Arjun Kapoor and half-sister Anshula Kapoor came to their aid.
“I think, I was still in that state of shock, to be very honest. I think I am still in shock. None of it has been processed. Like, I have no memory of three or four months. You know at the end of the day, we have the same blood in us. I don't remember anything of those four months but I do remember that one day when we were sitting in Harsh (Anil Kapoor's son) Bhaiya's room and Arjun Bhaiya and Anshula (Arjun Kapoor's sister) Didi came in -- I think that was the one day when I felt like, 'Ok maybe we might be okay,” the Dhadak actress said.
Janhvi recently said that 2018 was a mixed bag for her as she had both the “worst and best experience” of her life in the same breath. “It’s harder to say anything... When I say ‘growth’, I mean personal growth, I don’t know about artistic. This year brought me both the worst and the best experience of my life. It’s a little strange... Our family is now united, so that is a very big thing for me,’’ she had said. But whatever happened that too was very heavy (tragedy). We are still in shock, so we haven’t been able to process it properly. I’m really thankful for all the love that we have received and I got a chance to work, which is a big thing for me. I got a chance to make my parents proud, which is most important for me,” she had said during a session at the ongoing International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
On the professional front, Janhvi will be next seen in Karan Johar’s Takht. It also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.
